Kids will identify with Greg and all of the middle-school issues he has to deal with, like popularity, little siblings, and girls. Jeff Kinney deals with these issues with humor, insight, compassion, and an authentic tween boy’s voice. This book will be an asset to anyone dealing with reluctant readers. Each page has large, easy to read text interspersed with cartoons, however the book is long enough to tell a fairly complex tale and has a complicated enough vocabulary to keep kids from feeling 'talked down to.' Though the book is full of doodly illustrations, this is definitely not a graphic novel because the sketches, while enhancing the story, don’t tell it on their own. This book doesn't tackle any issues, nor does it try to make the reader a better person; it's just fun. Can't wait to read book two!
